We know that people value their home, but do they value it as much as their health? In a recent study 96% of homeowners said a favorable housing situation was an important contributor to their happiness. The overall health of their family was only slightly higher in importance – by one percentage point more (97%), which is essentially a tie. So a home is as much as a source of happiness as the welfare of the members of the household. The research implies that if you are not happy with where you live, you may not be happy with life. As a result you may want to explore moving if your place of residence is not satisfactory or doesn’t meet your needs. SimplySOLD is happy to help you make the home ownership decision that is best for you.
